    I need the output on a spreadsheet to create mail merge labels and lists.  Below is a link on Jotform.com to the form I created; however, it won't work because I need a separate row for each piece of art for each artist. In a relational database, you would create a separate table with a key field such as the artist's full name. Multiple artwork entries must be allowed. This is a "many-to-one" relationship. 

    Below (and also attached) is an Excel pdf excerpt from a previous show in the format I need it downloaded from Jotform.

    Each submission will create one line in the spreadsheet. This means that in order to have the same artist with several rows he will need to make several submissions. 

    I will work on a workaround that allows several submissions, but without the user having to fill in the form multiple times. 

    I will let you know as soon as I have a solution.

    I cloned the form and added a radio-button field so that user can select if he wants to add another artwork.

    I added a condition so that if "add another artwork" is yes, than change thank you page url:

    The thank you page is the same form but with url parameters so that the form gets pre-populated with fields like the name:

    https://form.jotform.com/60236405669963?lastName={lastName}&firstName={firstName} 

    You can test and clone the demo form:

    You can see here more details on how to use url parameters:
